The hotel name is no longer Chungmuro Residences but Merlin Hotel. This is already a BIG misleading for people to book the hotel. So many amenities were not available as well like washing machine, iron and a shower curtain. Bath towels will actually run out of stock.

WORST HOTEL EVER
I have stayed at more than 100 hotels in my life. This hotel is the worst hotel. Room is terribly small, the bed and pillow were terribly uncomfortable. The light at the bathroom didn’t work. There is nothing at the bathroom except for a soup. It is the first time for me to write review. Just not stay this hotel. 정말 여러 호텔을 다녀봤지만, 이런게 호텔이라는 놀라움을 감출 수 없는 호텔이다. 모든 것이 엉망인 호텔이다, 베게는 너무 불편하고, 이불도 엉망이고, 침대 또한 엉망이였다. 다시는 이용 하지 않을 호텔이다.
